Thermography has hundreds of applications. Spend some time just playing with the camera to see where you might find uses for it. Try piping the frames captured from your Lepton module into some computer vision software like SimpleCV! We'd love to see what you do with the FLiR Dev Kit so be sure to leave a comment and tell us all about it!
